Hills officials consider notice for $25M community center bonds

UPDATE: This council meeting was canceled, due to Monday’s snow storm.

Farmington Hills city council members during their January 28, 7:30 p.m., meeting may move a new community center another step forward.

On the Consent Agenda, a collection of items that may be approved without discussion, is a Notice of Intent to issue up to $25 million in Capital Improvement Bonds. Proceeds will fund the renovation of Harrison High School as a community center and may also fund building repairs at the Costick Activities Center.

The amount is based on estimated costs; officials ultimately may spend less, but not more.

The notice starts the clock on a 45-day referendum period, during which residents can bring the bond issue to a vote with petitions signed by at least 10 percent of registered voters.

The agenda also includes recognition of the city’s 2018 outstanding employees, appointments to committees and commissions, and proclamations encouraging workplaces to hold CPR/AED drills and recognizing February 7 as Optimist Day, in honor of the local club’s work with youth.
